This album features various commissioned compositions by JANEK SCHAEFER in album context and in this way he created an excellent listening experience of atmospheric music and soundscapes in which he expertly shapes instrument recordings (vinyl) samples and field recordings into meditative and captivating journeys of music and sound. Excellent album :)
Favorite track: B3: Fields of the Missed.
Double Exposure is a studio album, written over six years [2005-2011] in Janek’s career as a composer, sound artist, and musician. Each of the twelve tracks is a response to an invitation to write a piece of music for a compilation CD or installation etc. This then is the second time for them to have been exposed, but collected as a coherent series of album tracks. The source sounds are produced using location recordings and manipulated vinyl, which are simply processed through a collection of foot Loop/Reverb/Pitch/Eq pedals & mixing desk, and then assembled on screen. Anamnesis refers to the ability of sound to trigger mental images in our minds eye. Each new series of images will be specific to each of us – and they are all uniquely generated and framed by these evocative compositions.

This is beyond all unreasonable doubt one of the best albums I ever listened to. As a painter who needs the right music to be able to work - I often prefer silence - Nachtstuecke is the kind of surrounding that is present without ever demanding attention. It works like a kind of carrier wave. I am very impressed and the next album I will add is Stephan Mathieu's 'Before Nostromo'.
